You Will Need
Large Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

Prepare the Ingredients
Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.
Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.
Pat chicken thighs dry and season with ¼ tsp. salt. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.

Cook the Chicken
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken thighs, white portions of green onions, and corn to hot pan and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4-5 minutes per side. [CAN WE CHANGE THIS TO 5-7?]

Make the Risotto
Stir rice, 1 cup water, seasoning blend, and chicken base into hot pan until combined. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, cook until liquid has reduced by half, 4-6 minutes.
Remove from burner. Stir in garlic salt, cream cheese, 1 tsp. lime juice, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper until combined and creamy. If too thick, add water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
Remove from burner.
